I was not very interested in the things located inside the museum. But the murals outside were an entirely different story. I loved them! It was a great first day on our Route 66 trip

Just like my title says, here is where you'll learn more about the artists and art found throughout downtown Pontiac. Be sure to pick up the pamphlet and make sure you see all of the murals.

Loved following the footsteps in town and finding the murals painted by "Wall Digs," which we learned about at the museum. Of course, the footsteps take you past shops and restaurants, but what a great way to see Pontiac. Loved it!!

Take a leisurely walk and follow the blue footprints on the walk. A number of great murals painted by wall dogs the inspire memories. This was a pleasant surprise.

It was very interesting to see just how this artwork transformed walls and get to know some of the history behind the traveling sign painters of yore.
